In Visual Studio You Must Be A Member Of Debug Users Or Administrators To Start Debugging. What If You Are But It Doesn't Work?

- 1 answer

On my Windows XP machine Visual Studio 2003 2005 and 2008 all complain that I cannot start debugging my web application because I must either be a member of the Debug Users group or of the Administrators group. So, I am an Administrator and I added Debug Users just in case, and it still complains.

Short of reformatting my machine and starting over, has anyone encountered this and fixed it [with some undocumented command]?

Answer

Which users and/or groups are in your "Debug programs" right (under User Rights Assignment)? Maybe that setting got overridden by group policy (Daniel's answer), or just got out of whack for some reason. It should, obviously, include the "Debug Users" group.
